HyperCard was cool, but not here...
Looking at today's web technologies, HyperCard was clearly a groundbreaking innovation, still unequaled in many usability aspects. This show however, must have been informative and all at the time but fails to focus on the more interesting aspects of HyperCard for today's viewers.
Funny though towards the end, when Bill Atkinson says he gets fan-mailed HC stacks every day!
